Music was very important to Haley, which is how the organization came to be. During the last week of her life, Haley’s two favorite bands, Warpaint and the Growlers came to play for her, bedside. Shortly after her death, her best friend, Samantha, went about organizing a benefit with both bands (along with various other local Orange County bands: TRMRS, Tijuana Panthers, and Pangea) slotted to play at the Observatory in Santa Ana. The Haley Butcher Benefit was a sold-out night of raw emotion and celebration. At that point, everyone knew that with Haley as inspiration, nearly anything could be achieved. So that brings us to today, a point where Haley is a cause for dancing and changing the lives of other sick children.
